A socio-political group in the Ngor Okpala Local Government Area of Imo State, Ogbako Ngor Okpala Youth, has raised the alarm over the activities of Fulani herdsmen in the various farmlands in their LGA, warning that if nothing was done, they may resort to self help.

The youths made the allegation in a letter addressed to the state Governor, Rochas Okorocha, and signed by Henry Uzoma, President and Chinedu Opara, Secretary, a copy of which was obtained by The Punch on Wednesday.

The youths alleged that the activities of the herdsmen who they described as marauders were unbecoming because of the dangerous ways they carry out their activity.

The group alleged that the invasion of Umuohie village farm lands by herdsmen portends grave consequences for the totally agrarian community.

“like we earlier noted, Fulani herdsmen are no longer a distant story in our council but an ugly reality going by the recent invasion of farm Lands of the people of Umuehie village, Ngor Autonomous community by them and consequent destruction of farmlands and crops worth millions of Naira. ”

The group called on Okorocha to stop the potential peace threat and restore security in the land by asking the herdsmen to steer clear of their farmlands .

The statement urged the Governor to instruct heads of security formations in the state to find a lasting solution to the disturbing situation in the LGA .
